"(...) it impressively demonstrates the richness and variety of model-bearing portraits in Western medieval art and that they are indeed worthy of continued scrutiny." (Charles B. McClendon, in caa.reviews, 16 February 2012, http://caareviews.org/reviews/1772)
Compressed Meanings approaches the donor’s model primarily as part of an iconographic tradition whose origins can shed light on the message the model-bearers and their models were intended to convey.
Emanuel Klinkenberg studied history of art at Leiden University (Netherlands), where he received his Ph.D cum laude in 2006. His research interests cover medieval European art and its relationship with architecture and theology.
